New company, Rather Dashing Games, was showing three products at Gen Con.
Four Taverns is a lighthearted but cut-throat game, where each player is a tavern owner hiring adventures to complete quests. Quests lead to gold, which leads to renown, which attracts more adventurers.
X-Marks the Spot is a pirate-themed, tile-laying game using cards. The goal is to get an “x” shaped pattern on the board using the symbols of your secret pirate identity’s flag.
In the Red Hot Silly Peppers card game, the goal each turn is to build a salsa recipe by matching the point total on a spinner. Hot pepper cards from a player’s hand add to the total points. Sweet fruit cards reduce the point total. There are also special action cards that allow players to spin again or swap cards.
